A Heart For God: Top 10 Excuses For Not Going To Church (tweetcast)

Top 10 Excuses For Not Going To Church (tweetcast)

This was a quick list I put together off the top of my head on a Sunday recently before church. The way it looked as I tweeted it on Twitter is below ~ including the hashtags.

Hashtags are a way of bookmarking on Twitter (in case you didn't know). And so if you wanted to search a particular conversation, subject, whatever, you could type a hashtag in the Twitter search box and ~ voila! ~ everything tweeted with that hashtag will appear no matter if you're following somebody or not. (To make any word into a hashtag just add the "#" symbol.)

I came up with the tweetcast idea and hashtag a while ago (kind of like a radio or television broadcast). I've found it's a great way to challenge and teach online. (Teaching is what I do.) Combine it (the hashtag approach) with whatever subject matter you're teaching and it works quite well to pull up later. (Another example is my #HopeForTheHolidays #tweetcast I did last Christmas season. I will do it again this year.)

You may want to post the following tweets yourself. (It's okay.) You could give me credit by adding the hashtag: #aheartforgod if you like. See how it works?! :)

Hi, Mike! I like this. I addressed some of these same issues in a series of columns I wrote for a Cincinnati area weekly newspaper back in 2007. They're called "Letters to My Non-Churchgoing Friends." Here's a link to all the columns:

Thanks for your great witness for Christ!

Many people go to church looking for a true friend thinking Christians won't be mean or judge them for being poorer or not having the latest so called fashions or a nice truck/car.. sadly many Christians act like that .. why would anyone want to put them selfs thru that .. when Christians act like the Christ Followers they claim to be more people will go back to church including me

What a sad truth that Anonymous brings up, however please know that Christians are human just like you and they stumble and dont always act the way they should. We sin and mess up a lot. The Christian chooses to continue striving though and trying to be better. Dont look to other Christians as the example b/c you will be let down, instead look to God. My hope can not be built on the Christ follower because the Christian is imperfect. Instead your hope should be built on Jesus because he is perfect and wont let you down as some of the christ followers that you have encountered have. Just know we are not all bad and we are all trying to get to the same place. I hope that you make your way back to church eventually and not go there and judge how good is the christ follower, instead how can you become more like Christ.

God commands us to fellowship with one another and to worship him and to spread the gospel. Too often I, like others, have used these excuses to avoid doing Gods' will. Maybe we could all explain our excuses to Him on Judgement Day.

But Jesus died for you. He invites you to be part of His church. Are you going to let how others behave dictate whether or not you obey Gods' will?
